Beware of counterfeit money floating around Boaz.
According to the Sand Mountain Reporter, small businesses, grocery stores, restaurants and even the ballpark concession stands have become victims of someone passing the fake money.
The problem is not limited to Boaz, it seems funny money is showing up all around us.
Earlier this week, Police in Rome, Georgia reported that counterfeit money showed up there.
According to the report a manager at Zaxby’s on Shorter Avenue informed investigators that two fake $20 bills turned up in their drive-thru drawer; two more of the phony bills were found at the Taco Bell, located on Turner McCall Boulevard.
All the incidents remain under investigation.
